  • Nikki Beach Marbella: Stunning Location and Moonlight Dinner

    Although I have always heard about Nikki Beach Marbella being famous for their crazy day time champagne sprays and Sunday beach parties me and my boyfriend decided to explore the place on the evening on our arrival to the hotel Don Carlos. I was pleasantly surprised as the location looks absolutely serene and stunning in the dark with the little torches and candles lit everywhere and live sax music playing on the background. We had a great meal, the service was excellent and our waitress very helpful. The food was absolutely delicious and not that pricey at all as we thought it would be. All in all we had a lovely experience and will definitely go back there and would recommend the same to others.

    I liked the Bacchus club especially of its unique location. Fantstic views of the biggest yachts, mountain, port skyline. Great wine tastery. Outside spa and jacuzzi. Possibility to dress in togas.

    We celebrated at that club our wedding, its really ideal for big parties.

    Dress Code: casual but elegant

  • The Main Strip: Puerto Banus - Full of hookers

    by andyjohnson Written Nov 28, 2007

    I recently went on a golfing trip located inland from Marbella. The golfing was fantastic and later that evening my friends and I wanted to sample the local nightlife. We were advised to go to Puerto Banus where there is an abundance of bars and clubs.

    It was busy with mostly Brits and lots of pretty women. But something about this place wasn't quite right. It didn't take long to work out that practically all the beautiful ladies were either nightclub dancers or prostitutes. There were very few legitimate female tourists and being a single guy, I like the prospect of meeting decent single women. However, after chatting to several girls, they soon dropped the question, "Would you like some business - 300 euros?"

    The Spanish don't seem to regulate these popular destinations. I've got nothing against hookers, but they should have an established area for whores, like Amsterdam, rather than ply their trade in clubs. Verdict - there are better places in Spain.

    Olivia Valere: Best of the Best

    by moe0875 Updated Aug 19, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A club next to a mosque!! you can't beat that...very Andaluslian looking building with mutible bars, lounges and indoor and outdoor dance floors. The crowds are one of the best looking people in Europe, I got drunk just by looking at them. And the music is worth listening to until the light is out. I have been going to this spot since I was 18 when it used to be across the street next to a travel agency.
    Don't miss going there when you are in Marbella next, it is very popular place as much as it's owner who happen to carry the same name. So go see Olivia...

    Dress Code: Look gooooood

    Fatback Band

    Well our few days in Marbella co-incided very nicely with the JAzz festival in MAy. One particular band I wanted to see - and promptly forget all about with the meetings going on - was the Fatback Band - showing my age now! Well we strolled out from our beachside restaurant and there they were peforming on the beach. A good group of Vt'ers stayed to watch the band, the strobe light effects and have a dance too. A lovely end to the evening.

    La Notte: For a great night out!

    La Notte is a great place to spend a partying night or to go for a drink or two. It's very fashionable and elegant, nicely decorated in Moroccan style, with a large terrace and a pleasant garden with tables. You will always see beautiful people here.

    There are shows and live music performances later in the night. If you want to have a dinner first, you can have it at the restaurant that belongs to the same owners, next to it, the Meridiana.

    This is my favourite nightclub in the world. It has an excellent atmosphere!

    Dress Code: Casual chic. No sneakers.

    It's a kind of roving unplanned live entertainment which is what makes it so special for me. The unexpected delight of a song you know and some you don't really makes those warm starlit evenings in small cafes. The first guy was very lively, so Hansi and I danced in the street, unfortunately I couldn't keep up with him! He has more energy than a barrel load of monkeys!

    Dress Code: Anything you choose, preferably holiday clothes!

    Old town - Casco antiguo

    Old town map - Plano del casco antiguo

    You can go out at night in Puerto Banus and the old town, but in my very personal opinion, the old town has a younger atmosphere and it's very good. I have been in differents pubs along Isaac Peral and Caballeros streets and two of them in "Plaza de los Olivos". There are pubs where you can dance or just drink something with your friends and/or couple.

    Puedes salir por la noche por Puerto Banús o el casco antiguo, pero en mi opinión personal la zona histórica tiene un ambiente más juvenil y está muy bien. He estado en diferentes pubs a lo largo de las calles Isaac Peral y Caballeros y en dos de ellos en la plaza de los Olivos. Hay pubs para bailar o simplemente para tomarte unas copas con tus amigos y/o pareja.

    The bar!

    Bar Cheers is a very friendly welcoming bar, next to Hotel Cortijo Blanco in San Pedro in Marbella. They have Salsa lessons twice a week - a great place to learn Salsa.
    I recommend a visit!

    They also show all live sports.
    Have a great air-con system/ open fire depending on the weather!
    Plus a cocktail menu that would be impossible to work your way through!

    Olivia Valere, Café del Mar...: Do U wanna dance?

    by venteeocho Updated Aug 23, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Olivia Valere
    It's worth staying up late for this night club disco which is located on the Istan road near the Marbella Mosque. Housed in a purpose built Moorish/Andaluz style structure with a vast dance floor, several bars and outdoor terrace for al fresco sippin'. Be careful not to choke when you see the bill. Seriously swanky nightclub, always delivers a euphoric punch, great to celebrity spot but only the disco shiny likely to get in. Ctra. Istan Km 0.8.

    Café del Mar
    Part of the Hotel Puente Romano, this is one of Marbella´s coolest clubs. Dreamy beachside setting. Popular with the Baywatch babe lookalikes.

    Dress Code: Elegant, casual, trendy

    Oh Marbella
    Hotel Don Carlos, Marbella. Always a favourite. Open during the summer months, internationally known DJ's spin the tunes at this, one of Marbella's most popular disco's. If the legs start to weaken about 04.30 they'll change DJ's and 'bring on the late night hard man'. His beat keeps even the faint hearted dancing till dawn.

    Scream Disco - (Puerto Banus)
    Name says it all - one for lovers of loud music!

    La Comedia - (Puerto Banus)
    Puerto Banús's most popular club, La Comedia is a great place to drink, dance and have a rocking good time to the latest hits until the early hours

    Many trandy options: Banus at night ... wow !

    by venteeocho Updated Aug 23, 2005

    Sinatra Bar
    Small, very popular bar at entrance to the port with pulsating music and groovy crowd.

    Salduba Pub
    Right next to Sinatra's, attracts the overspill and more laid-back with plenty of tables to sip a drink and people watch.

    News Café
    Casual late night drinking venue but not much space for hip swinging and swirling skirts.

    El Café de Banús
    Relaxed, candlelit café where you sit and ogle the flash cars cruise by with an appropriate back drop of luxury yachts and swanky speed boats.

    O'Grady's
    Bustling Irish bar popular with young locals and tourists, many of whom are (not surprisingly) from Ireland. Resident DJ but not too much room to dance. An outdoor bar is useful for quick service.

    El Cubanito
    Featuring an unusual thatched roof, this disco pub has an outdoor dance floor and booming Cuban music.

    The Mambo Club
    The Mambo is one of Banús's larger venues, meaning there's ample opportunity to join in the fun and embarrass yourself dancing salsa.

    Dress Code: Casual but elegant
    Cartier & Jeans work well

    Tridente Bar
    Small and minimalist, the Tridente Bar offers inexpensive drinks and good service.

    Tipsy Turtle
    A 'rock and roll' type of venue with live music night between midnight and 2am.

    Devils
    Grungy spit and sawdust bar with large screen TV showing sports and pool table.

    Old Joy's Pub
    Plush velvet decor. Piano, singer and audience participation. Slightly older crowd who favour nostalgic music. SINATRA'S Two bars - one indoors and one outdoors - packed with people watching people. Puerto Banús front line.

    Linekers
    2nd line New Town Puerto Banus, enjoy the atmosphere of the largest bar in Puerto Banus, the party starts here every night of the week, Hen, stag, birthday party´s catered for. VIP area available. Watch all the sporting action on 24 screens showing all the sporting events from around the world.

    Omeyas: Puerto Banus Surprise

    by malaga-girl Updated Jul 30, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This new bar is a breath of fresh air to me in Puerto Banus. The atmosphere is very relaxing with a moroccan/oriental influence and live belly dancer every night. Not at all seedy and the perfect spot to be in Banus and yet feel away from the crowds. Probably not a place to stay all night, but certainly a place to chill for a couple of hours after dinner.
